Report: Mark Hunt-“Bigfoot” Silva Rematch Likely For November 14th
By FCF Staff
It looks like Mark Hunt and “Bigfoot” Silva will battle once again, nearly two years after their epic first encounter took place.
Hunt and Silva fought to a majority draw in December, 2013, in what was one of the UFC’s greatest heavyweight fights of all time. According to a new report from MMA Fighting.com, the UFC is in the works of booking a rematch for UFC 193. That card will take place on November 14th in Melbourne, Australia; however a venue has yet to be determined.
Since his first meeting with Silva, Hunt (10-10-1) has gone 1-2. The heavy handed New Zealand fighter KO’d Roy Nelson in September, 2014, but since then he’s been stopped by Fabricio Werdum and Stipe Miocic.
Silva (19-7-1) has also gone 1-2 since he battled Hunt. The Brazilian fighter was KO’d by Andrei Arlovski and Frank Mir in consecutive fights, but more recently, he stopped Soa Palelei.
UFC 193 will be headlined by a welterweight bout between champion Robbie Lawler and Carlos Condit.
